Dr. Joseph (Jay) Morgan has been selected to serve as Murray State University’s next provost by Dr. Randy J. Dunn, MSU president. He was selected from a national pool of 84 candidates and was one of four finalists who interviewed for the position. The Provost serves as the university's chief academic officer.

Morgan holds a B.S. degree in agriculture science and business, and an M.S. in agriculture science from MSU. He earned his Ph.D. at Oklahoma State University in agricultural education.

Murray State has announced four finalists in its search for a new provost. Current provost, Bonnie Higginson, announced her plans to retire in September, 2012. She will finish her work as Provost in June.

Dr. Jack Rose chairs the search committee and expects, despite a decision by MSU's board of regents not to extend President Randy Dunn a new contract, to continue with hiring the university's chief academic officer who is often noted as  the "second in command" at a University.

From NPR: Compromise is suddenly the watchword in Washington, as negotiations over taxes, spending and entitlements begin in advance of another self-imposed deadline, popularly known as the "fiscal cliff." Automatic tax increases and deep spending cuts are slated for the first of the year, unless the president and Congress take action. Leaders on both sides say they are willing to meet in the middle, but that makes their constituents worry about what any compromise will cost them.
